Batavi (265) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2016
Uitgeschonken in St. Bernardus bokaal, troebel bruin bier met oranjeachtige gloed, medium hoge witte schuimkraag. Aroma's van; karamelmout, donker fruit als rozijnen, dadels en pruimen, iets vineus licht zurig, en specerijen. Het smaakpallet is complex en zeer gebalanceerd. Karamelmout, vijgen, dadels, licht houtig, specerijen als peper, kaneel en vanille, Belgische gist, rode wijn, licht zurige accenten. De carbonatie is stevig, de afdronk is relatief droog. Perfect voorbeeld van een Dubbel, en net als de Abt 12 erg goed, mooi complex in aroma en smaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barrracuda (36) - AUSTRIA - FEB 8, 2016
Big head but instable. Deep reddish amber brown colour. Intense alcoholic flavor, spicy, phenolic, dark fruits, plum, caramel. High carbonation, full mouthfeel, sweet, warming. Long complex aftertaste.

Rhombic (78) - SPAIN - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish with a huge, mostly lasting off-white head. Good lacing. Grape and plum aromas, delicious fruity notes and some citrus too. Brown sugar. Bold and spicy, fruity flavours with a yeasty boost. A bit sour in a very nice way. Very well balanced alcohol... and I’m usually picky about this. Toasted caramel, some soft blackberry-like flavours but not overwhelming. Good, but I prefer others.

0,33 l Flasche aus einem lokalen REWE-Markt. Kastanienbraun, mäßig Kohlensäure, schöne feinporige Schaumkrone. Riecht süßlich, nach Hefe, Karamell, Teig. Im Geschmack ähnlich, kaum bitter. Fast wie ein Likör

King_Alex_II (917) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 20, 2016
Dark brown color with a long lasting beige foam head. The nose has licorice and heavy yeasty notes. The taste is well balanced with a little too belgian carbonation. Licorice and sweet yeasty and malty parts work well together. Calm aftertaste. This beer is a very nice representative of its style.
